0 hours 18-20 mins
0 hours 50 mins
1 1/4 Cups Old fashioned oats
6 Tbsp. unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 Cup Swerve light brown sugar
3/4 Cup Swerve granulated sugar
1 Large egg
2 Tsp. Pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 Cups all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. Ground Flaxseed
3⁄4 Tsp. baking powder
1⁄2 Tsp. baking soda
1⁄2 Tsp. salt
1⁄2 Tsp. cinnamon
1/8 Tsp. freshly ground nutmeg
1 Cup Raisins, dark and golden mix
Skim milk, for serving
Fresh berries or banana slices, for serving (optional)
1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2) In a standing mixer (or a large bowl using a hand mixer), beat together the butter, Swerve brown and granulated sugars, vanilla, and egg until combined. Add the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, flax seed, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix until combined. Using a spatula, fold in the raisins.
3) Now that the dough is made, use a tiny ice cream scoop (1/2 tablespoon) and scoop out tiny mounds of the dough and place them on the prepared baking sheets.
4) Bake each tray of cookies for 18-20 minutes until golden and cooked through. Let them cool completely before pouring into a bowl and adding milk and your favorite fruit. Don’t forget the spoon! Enjoy!
NOTES: I caught a dozen of these cookie cereal videos on TikTok and knew I’d try it but I really didn’t want a full blown, sugar loaded cookie hit first thing in the morning. Hey, it took years to stop craving those sugary cereals we had as kids… I knew one bite and I’d be hooked.
So, I got rid of the sugar in this recipe and added some whole grain flour and flaxseed. I did leave the butter for flavor. A light butter would work or you could even try coconut oil. BUT, I wanted the butter flavor in these.
I used raisins, but you can leave those out for even less sugar. I personally love the taste.
You can store this in zip lock baggies or a plastic container. I’m assuming 1 cup portions here and if you use skim milk and add some fresh fruit, you’ve actually got a pretty tasty breakfast that is good for you. You’ll love it and the kids will go nuts.
